Avelino said he is a longtime admirer of KuyaNic that prompted him to join LuponWXC.
“I used to order a lot of streaming products to improve the broadcast quality of streamers in the local field,” Avelino, who is looking forward to the completion of their world-class gaming facility in Cavite, said in a statement.
“One day, our common friend asked me if I had any supplies lying around for a certain product that was out of stock everywhere. I asked who needed it, and he said it was KuyaNic. Knowing who he was, I offered to give him the product for free.”
KuyaNic, who broke into the Esports scene in 2016 via is groundbreaking idea of creating a broadcast platform for gaming called WomboxCombo, said he always believes in the potential of gaming.
“I’ve always believed that gaming is the future,” he said.
“At the time, there really wasn’t a blueprint on how things should be done, and I saw this as my chance to be a part of it and develop it.”
As a key partner, Avelino would be sharing his knowledge and use his experience to improve the quality of the company’s curated content and the coverage of all current gaming events.
